Following the Kings of Leon cancelations, Isaac Hanson calls them ungrateful “pricks” on radio.
There has been much unrest in the Kings Of Leon camp, leading to the cancellation of the rest of their US tour.
Gigwise reports that Isaac Hanson, of pop survivors Hanson, decided to weigh in during an interview with Wenn.
He said, “I have a hard time with musicians who act like pricks because it just makes me mad. If you’re actually making a living doing it [making music], pinch yourself every day, because it goes if you don’t love it and people will eventually get pissed off.”
He continued, “’I’m gonna call somebody out on it – the Kings Of Leon are running some risks. They’re irritating people and you can’t do that too much. Eventually the bad boy image affects fans’ willingness to show up. Their fans will get bummed out.
“Everybody has their demons, everyone has their challenges. I’m a bit of a hothead in certain circumstances, but you gotta temper it because your fans are there and they’ve paid good money to see a show, and you gotta bring it.
Hanson learned that lesson the hard way, fighting to create a sustained career after their one-hit wonder status in 1997.
Up to their eighth album, they became a successful independent act by gathering a formidable fanbase through touring.
